Euromoney launches inaugural 'trapped cash' pulse survey
In the first of a series of pulse surveys on issues impacting the global transaction services industry, Euromoney is asking corporate treasurers and finance directors which countries in particular are the most and least efficient in enabling them to repatriate company cash.
To start with, our first pulse survey on trapped cash specifically tackles a perennial and substantial problem for companies worldwide. There are various reasons why it can be more difficult to repatriate cash from one country compared with another, which is why we want to highlight these reasons and those countries where the problem can be most acute.
The pulse survey results and accompanying editorial analysis are free to access and published online at Euromoney.com.
